The one thing your dream requires of you

The dream God put within you demands something: a look inside.

It won’t come alive until you do.

He would would build high must first dig deep. - JC Ryle

And until you face some important questions:

  • What am I willing to do without to make room for what is to become?
  • What challenges or obstacles will be big enough to stop me?
  • What are the faith lessons I am learning and how can I better listen to the voice of the Master?

Those are just a start. Many more like them be unearthed within you to keep the fire of motivation burning. As the writer Stuart Aken puts it, “Inspiration fires you up; motivation keeps you burning.”

It’s one thing to have a dream, it’s altogether a different matter to build it. That requires the spade work of reflection.

What other questions have you found helpful in your own reflective spade work?
